” And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.
And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.- Exodus32:30-32
The above highlighted words were said by Moses to Lord the God. When Moses went upon mount Sinai to get ten commandments, the people of Israel sinned by making and worshiping golden calf. Hence Lord the God was angry and was about to punish these people. But Moses interceded for the people of Israel and asked God not to punish them, instead let the punishment be upon himself. Moses was ready to give up his eternal life for the sake of people of Israel. He asked God to blot out His name from the book (Book of life).
Even our disobedience and sins are more than the Israelites, but our High Priest Lord Jesus Christ is always interceding with Lord the God our heavenly father . hence we are not punished. Our punishment was upon Jesus Christ, who died on cross once for all, for every man’s sin.
As Jesus Christ intercede for us, we must also intercede in praying for unsaved people.
Let us pray to God, let there be a true repentance within us, So that our names should not be blotted out of book of life.
